of right to privacy the Supreme Court said on Thursday Similarly tapping of telephones and internet hacking of personal data is another area which falls within the realm of privacy it said Justice J Chelameswar who wrote a separate but concurring judgement also touched upon other aspects like consumption of food and a woman’s freedom of choice on whether to terminate pregnancy "Concerns of privacy arise when the state seeks to intrude into the body of subjects Corporeal punishments were not unknown to India their abolition is of a recent vintage Forced feeding of certain persons by the state raises concerns of privacy" he said File image of Supreme Court AFP "An individual’s rights to refuse life-prolonging medical treatment or terminate his life is another freedom which fall within the zone of the right of privacy" Justice Chelameswar said in his 44-page verdict He however said he was "conscious of the fact" that this issue was pending before the apex court The Supreme Court recently termed as "sensitive" the issue of right to have a "living will" to refuse life support in the last days of an ailing person by declining to adjudicate it and leaving it for the government to take a call "A woman’s freedom of choice whether to bear a child or abort her pregnancy are areas which fall in the realm of privacy" he said "I do not think that anybody would like to be told by the State as to what they should eat or how they should dress or whom they should be associated with either in their personal social or political life" Justice Chelameswar said He apparently referred to the Aadhaar scheme in which biometric data of individuals is collected by the government "Telephone tappings and internet hacking by the State of personal data is another area which falls within the realm of privacy The instant reference arises out of such an attempt by the Union of India to collect biometric data regarding all the residents of this country" he said He cited various examples and observed that the decision-making process regarding the freedom of association travel and residence were purely private and fell within the realm of right of privacy "All liberal democracies believe that the State should not have unqualified authority to intrude into certain aspects of human life and that the authority should be limited by parameters constitutionally fixed" Justice Chelameswar said Insofar as religious beliefs are concerned he said that "a good deal of the misery our species suffer owes its existence to and centres around competing claims of the right to propagate religion" He said fundamental rights were the only "constitutional firewall" to prevent the government’s interference with those core freedoms constituting liberty of a human being "The right to privacy is certainly one of the core freedoms which is to be defended It is part of liberty within the meaning of that expression in Article 21 (the Right to Life and Personal Liberty of the Constitution)" Justice Chelameswar said He also made it clear that no legal right including right to privacy could be absolute "Every right has limitations This aspect of the matter is conceded to at the bar Therefore even a fundamental right to privacy has limitations The limitations are to be identified on a case to case basis depending upon the nature of the privacy interest claimed" he said He also referred to the importance of the Constitution and said it could not be seen as a document written to replace one legal regime by another "It is a politically sacred instrument created by men and women who risked lives and sacrificed their liberties to fight alien rulers and secured freedom for our people not only of their generation but generations to follow" Justice Chelameswar said A nine-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar has unanimously ruled that "right to privacy is an intrinsic part of Right to Life and Personal Liberty under Article 21 and entire Part III of the Constitution" By: Reuters | London | Updated: September 18 2017 9:10 am Arsene Wenger said the performance was more significant than the point (Source: Reuters) Related News Arsene Wenger said no one should be surprised by his side’s battling 0-0 draw at champions Chelsea on Sunday their best performance away from the Emirates Stadium since last season’s FA Cup final victory over Antonio Conte’s side “People forget that two months ago we beat Chelsea in the Cup final and they don’t give you the Cup you know” Wenger whose side were lambasted after a 4-0 capitulation at Liverpool in their last away league game told reporters (English Premier League Home | Fixtures | Standings/Table) “Overall I believe we have shown that many times It’s true you have to accept criticism when we deliver the kind of performance we had at Liverpool — the only way to respond is on the pitch and that’s what we did today “We responded well in domains where we were questioned and I like when the team shows that kind of response” With Mesut Ozil unfit to start and Alexis Sanchez only on the bench all eyes were on Arsenal to see if they would collapse as they did at Anfield and lose a sixth successive league match at Stamford Bridge Instead just as at Wembley in May they troubled Chelsea They almost matched the home side for goal attempts and had the better chances while at the back they played with steely resolve and discipline to become the first side to stop the Blues scoring in a competitive home game since Conte took charge Had Aaron Ramsey not been denied by the post or Shkodran Mustafi by a correct offside decision Arsenal could have silenced their critics with a first away league victory While the Gunners are still awaiting their first league goal away from home Wenger said the performance was more significant than the point “It was vital for us even above the result to come out with a solid performance on that front” the Frenchman said “When you’re a football player there’s only one thing that matters — the next game and how you respond to it “That’s what we did today” Wenger’s mood was only soured by an injury to striker Danny Welbeck which forced him off in the second half “He has a groin problem” Wenger said “I don’t know how severe it is but it looks like a ‘good’ groin problem not an easy one” For all the latest Sports News download

of subsidies Related News As of the first half of March 786 million of those who are 18 and older have got Aadhaar numbers The largest absolute numbers are in Maharashtra Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal There are two broad channels for Aadhaar enrolment — the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) itself and the Registrar General of India (RGI) For instance in Lakshadweep Dadra & Nagar Haveli Tamil Nadu West Bengal Odisha Nagaland Manipur Jammu and Kashmir Mizoram Arunachal Pradesh Meghalaya and Assam the enrolment responsibility is with RGI The UIDAI is responsible for other geographical areas One test of how enrolment is progressing is to gauge what percentage of the population has been covered If you want to be statistically correct this isn’t that simple The distribution of the 18-plus population is available for Census 2011 not 2015 One can extrapolate from those numbers to get the denominator Or the 2011 numbers can be used as a base recognising that population growth will mean one may get more than 100 per cent enrolment For trends extrapolation seems unnecessary One may as well use Census 2011 numbers All enrolment numbers are public-domain information on the UIDAI website There is also another issue that of comparing residents to citizens But that may not be quantitatively important For UIDAI-driven enrolment states/UTs 86 per cent of the target population has been covered from 1276 per cent enrolment in Delhi to 463 per cent in Bihar For RGI-driven enrolment states/UTs 82 per cent of the target population has been covered ranging from 108 per cent in Lakshadweep to 11 per cent in Assam At that broad-brush level the UIDAI’s track record is better than the RGI’s This is clear from average daily enrolments too running at about 940000 for the UIDAI and 65000 for the RGI There are around 111 UIDAI districts where enrolment is still less than 50 per cent and 206 RGI districts where enrolment is less than 50 per cent But these are stock numbers The increments or flows are more important The story there is a sharp increase in enrolments in UP and a slowing down in Maharashtra Karnataka Rajasthan MP and Gujarat especially in the more difficult districts Once people have got Aadhaar numbers what next Aadhaar and biometry only ensures there aren’t two individuals with identical names and identical biometry at the same address It prevents multiplicity Thereafter it is a question of what use one makes of Aadhaar To use technical jargon Aadhaar must be seeded into assorted programmes This means: one beneficiary data must be digitised; two if beneficiaries don’t possess Aadhaar numbers they must be enrolled; and three if they possess Aadhaar numbers this must be matched with beneficiary databases So far the primary success has been in seeding bank accounts (old or new) with Aadhaar numbers The next step which is where beneficiaries come in is direct benefit transfers (DBTs) In August 2014 a study was undertaken by the then Planning Commission that matched beneficiary data for five schemes (post-matric scholarships for SC/ST/minorities pensions the MGNREGA PDS subsidised LPG connections) with UIDAI numbers in 300 districts That exercise is a bit old so one needn’t state precise findings Suffice to say that there were major problems with the first point To the extent digital beneficiary data existed there were problems with points two and three I am not aware of robust studies done after in government or outside it Anecdotally that digitisation of the beneficiary database seems to be working better for LPG connections than for scholarships pensions the MGNREGA or PDS Yet another issue makes it worse The UIDAI is a tool That tool isn’t going to help identify BPL (below the poverty line) households the beneficiaries of subsidies This is a socioeconomic issue and is important in segments like LPG connections or PDS where the “poor” aren’t self-identified The NSS and poverty estimates based on NSS can’t work The NSS is a survey not a census It can tell us what percentage of the population is below the poverty line in say Maharashtra regardless of how the poverty line is defined It can’t tell us whether a specific household is poor or not That apart NSS samples generally surface at intervals of five years However we have the rural development ministry’s Socio-Economic and Caste Census (SECC) of 2011 One of its three objectives is “To enable households to be ranked based on their socioeconomic status State governments can then prepare a list of families living below the poverty line” There can be errors of omission (excluding those who are poor) and commission (including those who are not poor) Therefore suppressing the religion and caste bit the rest of the information will be put up in: one the panchayat office; two another prominent location in the panchayat; or three the office of the BDO That allows for errors of omission and commission to be taken care of through objections Hence there is a draft list After objections are taken care of there is a final list Note that “No changes would be allowed in the data for one year following the publication of the final list” That may be operationally necessary However in March 2015 final lists are available for only 118 out of 640 districts Draft lists are available in 541 out of 640 districts If it takes such a long time to firm up BPL lists how can DBTs work Does a household’s status remain invariant for four years and more None of Tamil Nadu’s districts figure in either the draft or final lists But the process was supposed to be completed in June 2013 with initial enumeration over by September 2012 Tamil Nadu isn’t the only state with such a timelag An inherently good
